Biography Juan Pantoja de la Cruz
Juan Pantoja de La Cruz was a Spanish painter, one of the best representatives of the Spanish School of court painters.

He was a pupil of the court painter Alonso Sànchez Coello
(1531/32-1588) in Madrid and he must have assisted him in complying with
his duties as painter of the Spanish King Philipp II (1527-1598).
Pantoja probably continued to work in his master studio after completing
his training. He married in 1585, beginning to paint for the court
around that time. After Sànchez Coello's death, Pantoja took over his
master workshop and became court painter to Philip II of Spai
